Outrage has been thrown towards Disney as they hint at a remake of the iconic film Bambi. One former Disney screenwriter has argued that the remake should remove the scene where Bambi’s mother dies amidst worries it might upset modern parents and children.
A Modern Spin on a Classic Tale
Lindsey Anderson Beer, the former Disney screenwriter who was asked to take on the remake of the beloved 1942 film Bambi, has called for the remake to scrap the scene where Bambi’s mother dies for all the wrong reasons.
Triggering Modern Parents
Anderson Beer proposed changing the scene where Bambi’s mother faces a tragic fate, claiming it might “trigger” modern-day parents and children.
Modern Parenting is “More Sensitive”
She argued, “Not to spoil the plot, but there’s a treatment of the mom dying that I think some kids, some parents these days are more sensitive about than they were in the past.”
Revisiting the Heartrending Original
The 1942 classic narrates the story of Bambi, a young fawn, as he grapples with the trials and tribulations of life in the forest, including the devastating loss of his mother.
The Emotional Scene
The scene in question depicts the heartbreaking moment when Bambi’s mother tragically falls prey to a hunter.
Social media buzzed with accusations of the remake being ‘woke,’ as fears that the heartbreaking scene, which teaches about life and death, will be removed.
A Timeless Piece… That Must Be Changed
Despite the suggested changes, Anderson Beer commended the original Bambi’s timeless artistry and poetic narrative, “What’s interesting about Bambi to me is it absolutely is a classic and it’s a beautiful love poem, such artistry to it.”
Worries For The New Generation
Beer noted that many children today might not appreciate the original Bambi plot, “The thing is, it is such a gorgeous film. It’s a little bit of a different tempo than I think modern audiences are used to.”
Stepping Away From Bambi
Anderson Beer’s involvement in other projects led to her stepping away from the Bambi remake; nevertheless, her comments have received backlash from the “anti-woke” brigade.
Bambi Gone Woke?
One X user wrote, “Bambi has officially gone woke. Expect pronoun and critical race to kill Bambi’s mom.”
A Money-Making Scheme?
“Dragging out classics from the graves and putting on shiny new clothes to squeeze more money out of them is disrespectful to their legacy,” wrote Mani Artist about the potential remake.
Poll Results Show 50/50 Split Between Parents
A recent poll suggested that 50% of parents are open to Disney reinventing their original films to make them more appealing to a modern audience.
Disney’s “Woke” Criticism
This wouldn’t be the first Disney remake accused of going “woke,” with The Little Mermaid’s remake facing backlash earlier in the year simply due to the casting of a non-white Aerial. “Q-White” the overreaction, some might say.
